Dear Collection Agency,

Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act Section 805 (C), it is my right to request that you cease contact with me. I am exercising my right to do so with this letter. I request that you immediately CEASE and DESIST all contact with me.

With this notice, under the law, you can now only contact me to:

  1. To advise me that your company's further efforts are being terminated;
  2. To notify me that your company may invoke specified remedies which are ordinarily invoked by such debt collector or creditor; or
  3. Where applicable, to notify me that your company intends to invoke a specified remedy.
